48 Hours in Paris – Where to DineLike0

 

One more croissant please? Nope. That wasn’t the phrase I used the most, surprisingly during this 3rd trip to Paris. It was, ‘pass the bread please!’ and ‘I love cheese’. With endless bistros and brasseries, la France had a hold of me with the vino’s, the cheeses and surprisingly the Mediterranean food and the great company of new friendships. Here are the 4  places I wined and dined in 48 Hours in Paris.

Le Grand Salon

This sophisticated place offers a culinary escape regardless the time of the day.

Restaurant Lazare Paris

Right across Hilton Opera Paris is restaurant Lazare Paris. A bistro style with a twist. The restaurant has long bar with tables around it and our long rectangular wooden table with 22 of our friends  facing the open style kitchen. We ordered the Salade de haricots verts, artichauts à l’huile de noiset, Sélection de charcuterie fin,  Œufs de poule mimosa, au thon et au crab (my favorite!) Calamars sautés à l’ail et au piment d’Espelett with a main dish of Cabillaud cuit au plat, tomate, gingembre et basilic. Absolutely delicious and ended with Crumble de framboise.

Parvis de la Gare Saint-Lazare / Rue Intérieure, 75008 Paris, France

Nai Paris

La cuisine Libanaise. For the love of homos, kebbeh, labneh and grilled. Nai Paris is a family owned business that has been opened for 10 years and growing. I couldn’t believe I found it! Rumors has it that it is the best lebanese food in the country. Strangely enough, I was craving a little bit of home cooked food and was glad I found the last table for two right in the corner for lunch. Paul, who owns this hidden gem runs the restaurant with his wife and brother. It is the place to eat home cooked Lebanese food and has loyal fans and regular visitors from all over the world!

L’estaminet Au Marche Des Enfants Rouge

A place to for cheese and wine during the day break, lovely brunch menus on Sundays and a great place to grab a bite with friends.

  • There are so many beautiful view points in Dubrovnik that’s easy to find. This one was from a place called Panorama Bar, views of the Old City,
the Lapad Bay and the nearby islands.

  • The gates of Angkor Thom, the last capital of the Angkor empire. There are 5 gates to the capital, built in the 12th century. The main gate was made with sculptures of 54 gods, one on each side, and the same number of demons on the other. I got that eerie feeling while driving through. I was in a Tuk Tuk and couldn’t help but stop and take a deep breath before entering, my heart was beating out of my chest. I’ve only made it to 2 gates but would love to go back and learn more. Looking at the picture got all the feelings back 💕
Thanks to @beautifulcambodia for guiding me!
  • You will always be the one person I’ll never stop looking for in a crowded place 💕
  • A little green overdose and into the jungle 🦋
  • I am made up of thousands of others. Everyone who has ever loved me, cared or inspired me or spoken one word of encouragement to me. Who I am is because of the people in my life 💕
  • They told me I had to be ready at 4:30am to watch the sunrise at Angkor Wat, the UNESCO site and the largest religious monument in the world. A Tuk Tuk drove me to the site, it was about 30 minutes off-road(ish), dark with no street lights and it was cold. I sat outside the temple gates looking at absolutely nothing, total darkness. I couldn’t see a thing for an hour. Then, sunrise... and I start seeing shadows of the temple and colors in the sky and there it was. They said that I was one of the luckiest ones because October is the wettest season and so they rarely get a clear sky at sunrise. And here I was, staring and what was once a black endless nothing to a place I always dreamed of ever seeing! 💕
  • You know how sometimes, your life is so perfect you’re afraid for the next moment, because it couldn’t possibly be quite as good? That’s what it feels like being in Cambodia for the first time.
  • Permission to call it my own... permission to hold on to whatever I fall in love with.
  • It was the last morning in London @thesavoylondon - I always get emotional leaving this city! A place I once called home 💕Happy weekend everyone!
  • Spent one morning with Annee on @demamielskin farm where she taught me what she learned on Chinese medicine, meditation and the way her essential oils were made. I even got to make my own! Her products are sold on @netaporter and she has a 3 year waiting list!!!! She’s an incredible woman and partnered up with @virginatlantic to provide the ‘Altitude oil’ for upper class passengers. #LivefromVirgin
